Album Notes
Wes Tucker & the Skillets have established a reputation throughout the D.C. and surrounding mid-Atlantic areas as a must-see band. The combination of intelligent songwriting backed by a powerful group of stellar musicians serves to create unique grooves. The band shifts from folk rock, to funk, to gospel, to soulful ballads in the space of a set list.

Wes Tucker & the Skillets return to the D.C. music scene with the release of their third full-length album, The Scorpion and the Dove. Produced by their own WAMMIE-nominated multi-instrumentalist, Arch Alcantara, The Scorpion and the Dove picks up where the last album left off, showcasing the band’s range and Tucker’s songwriting.

Their previous albums, Beauty in the Broken (2006) and Tradition (2004), have been praised by critics and fans for their thoughtful songwriting and exceptional composition. Music Monthly Magazine called Tradition “a vibrant work of an original artist,” and The Washington Post described the Skillets’ live set as a showcase of “solid songwriting and tight instrumentation in musical styles ranging from funk to groove-based R&B to soulful jam-based ballads. Tucker's tunes are sturdy without being rigid, soulful without being cloying, and he expresses them like he believes the words.”

“From funk inspired foot-stompers to soulful ballads, Tucker’s songwriting style remains strong. He is certainly a talented musician and one that will appeal to the masses. It’s obvious that Tucker is a musician that we will be hearing more from over the years.” – LEFT OFF THE DIAL

Keeping Music Real
This third CD from Wes Tucker and the Skillets, The Scorpian and the Dove" is just what I have been waiting for 2009 to bring. Clearly defined uncluttered mixes of finely crafted lyrics molded to skilled artistic composition. This album will be fresh for some time to come.
